Lubbock ISD administrators welcome their new high school athletic coordinator.

Shane Stephen comes to Lubbock from Mansfield with extensive experience in Texas coaching football.

He'll serve as the Lubbock High School football head coach following previous coach Jason Strunk's resignation in January. Stephen says to change the football program for the better starts with the culture.

"As a coach, I believe that we have the opportunity to have the biggest influence on kids outside of their family," he said. "Having that opportunity to install some of the values and virtues that I believe in. Helping them grow as individuals. The big picture, what we're really after is using the game of football to help them in the game of life."
